Ml Carroll is situated on the Chicago, Milwaukee & Sl Paul Railway 
tries (three trains each way daily, to and from Chicago) immediately 
west of Chicago on the Omaha division of this line. It is 150 miles south- 
west of Milwaukee on the Racine & Rock Island division. Two trans- 
continental trains, including the famous "San Francisco Overland Limited," 
to and from Chicago and San Francisco and Los Angeles, pass through Mt 
Carroll daily, stopping to let off sleeping-car passengers from distant points. 
Express trains, likewise, between Chicago and Denver, Omaha, Sioux City, 
Onmberlain, Sioux Falls and Rapid City (South Dakota), St Paul, Minneapolis, 
aas City-, Ottumwa, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Marion, and intervening 
mts, pass through Mt. Carroll daily, furnishing fine facilities for transportation, 
scalar attention is invited to the fact that passengers from the numerous 
Son the lines of the St. Paul and Union Pacific roads can reach Mt. Carroll

iree trains a day. Connection is made in Minneapolis with the

The town, of nearly 2,000 people, is ten miles from the Mississippi Rj v 
beautifully located among picturesque hills, and is justly celebrated for ib 
beauty and healthfulness. It is the county seat of Carroll County; has 
saloons and no factories, and is almost entirely a residence town. The c - 
stands on high ground, and overlooks a landscape rich and varied. The 
grounds consist of thirty-six acres, a large part of which is protected and shad** 
by many majestic old pine, maple, and elm trees. Orchards furnish van 
kinds of fruits, and a kitchen garden supplies the table with fresh vegetab 
The city water supply used by the School is obtained from an artes 
2,500 feet deep. The Jersey milk furnished the School table is pure. 



The main object at which the School aims is to fit its pupils for life— to 
the trained intellect, the refined sensibilities, the self-controlled will, the 
ened conscience, which together make a noble and symmetrical woi 
It is a preparatory school, but it is far more than that. 

The pupils are brought into constant contact with teachers of culture, „ 
ment, and experience, who know how to meet the needs of young girls and who 
enter sympathetically into their work and play. The appeal is made to the best 
in a girl; and results show that in most cases the appeal is successful A sen.

ment and to furnish social facilities for the use of the whole school.

The recitation rooms in Metcalf Hall, to which Andrew Carnegie contributed 
$10,000, were first used January 11, 1908; the auditorium, January 17. The 
building is 107X44 feet, native stone and sand-mold brick, two stories and 
mezzanine story, with tower and finial 100 feet high. The building contains 
offices, library, cloak-rooms, ten recitation rooms, and auditorium seating over 
four hundred. The interior wood has cathedral oak and bog oak finish. 
The electric-light system embodies the latest designs in Holophane shades and 
Tungsten lamps, distributed evenly over the ceilings, lighting perfectly every part 
of the building. The heat is from the central steam and power plant The 
tower contains the old bell used by Mrs. Shimer for more than thirty years. 

The building is named in honor of Mrs. Sarah Metcalf, a lifelong friend 
of the School, whose son Henry is now president of the Board of Trustees.

West Hall, occupied September n, 1906, designed by Architect C. A. Eck- 
storm, Chicago, 154X40, is a perfectly equipped home for over fifty people, in 
addition to reception rooms, parlors, dining-room, and Dean's apartments. On 
** ground floor are pupils' parior, pupils' kitchen, Young Women's Christian 
Association rooms, dining-room, serving-room, and kitchen— all built on most 
approved modern plans. A studio of artistic design is on the upper floor. Stand- 
Pipe, with hose on each floor, and fire escape are provided, with ample stairways

Hathaway Hall, dedicated in November, 1905, was named for Mis. M^ 
L. Hathaway Corbett, of the class of 1869, a sister of Mrs. Hattie N. UPelW 
of Freeport, a trustee of the School, who gave liberally toward the erection and 
furnishing of the building. The basement contains a modern gymnasium 70X36 
feet, besides three shower-baths set in marble partitions, lockers, and all other 
necessary fixtures. The three upper floors contain parlor, rooms for fifty pupik 
baths, and trunk-room. The parlor has been furnished by the Mount Carroll 
Seminary and Frances Shimer School Association of Chicago. In 1910 the 
residents of Hathaway, assisted by outside friends, added to the beauty of the 
interior by gifts of pictures and furniture. No detail has been omitted which 
would contribute toward making the building a thoroughly modern and com- 
fortable home. Adequate fire protection is secured by a standpipe, with hose 
connections on each floor, and fire escapes on each end, in addition to broad 
easy stairs. The hall was designed by Shepley, Rutan & Coolidge, Chicago.

The building for Instrumental and Vocal Music, and Domestic Science, 
was completed and opened for use in November, 1903. It is solidly constructed 
of brick and contains eleven practice-rooms, two rooms for instruction in piano 
and voice, sewing-room, kitchen, pantry, dumb-waiter, together with hall of gener- 
ous size, and basement complete under the whole building. The building was 
designed by Shepley, Rutan & Coolidge, of Boston and Chicago. The steam- 
near plant is connected with the boilers in the central heating plant. The 
binldxng « named for Mrs. Isabel Dearborn Hazzen, formerly head of the 
Department of Music for over twenty years.

At the solicitation of officials of the School, Andrew Carnegie offered in 
February, 1905, to give $10,000 to build a free public library for Mt Carr 11 f 
the town would furnish a suitable site and provide by taxation a sistaining fund 
This library is now in use, and pupils have free access to its privileges under 
proper chaperonage.

All buildings are equipped with electric bells, rung automatically by a Frick 
Program Clock. This insures accurate time and uniformity of procedure through- 
out the institution in closing and beginning recitations, as well as in houre for 
meals, for rising, and retiring. The master clock also controls a system of second- 
ary clocks in other buildings. 

The School, founded in 1853, and known for forty-three years as Mt 
Carroll Seminary, became, in 1896, by the wish of the founder, Mrs. F. A. W. 
Shimcr, an affiliated school of the University of Chicago. After much considera- 
tion between President Wm. R. Harper and Mrs. Shimer it was decided that a 
separate Board of Trustees should be organized to take charge of the School 
The Board consists of fifteen members, representing the University of Chicago, 
the alumnae of the Seminary, and the citizens of Mt. Carroll. 

The relation of the Frances Shimer School to the University of Chicago is a 
double one. In the first place, it is an affiliated school of the University, and, 
as such, the work of instruction is under the direct oversight of the University. 
In the second place, four of the fifteen Trustees are officials of the University. 
While, therefore, it sustains a relation to the University so intimate as to justify 
*ts name, it is an independent institution and seeks a constituency of its own. 

The hundreds of graduates and pupils of Mt Carroll Seminary are included 
as graduates and pupils of the School and the large constituency gained in 
over half a century furnishes a constant source of support, advancing its best 




\t her decease, Mrs. F. A. W. Shimer left the bulk of her property in tro* 
for the benefit of the School. The property consists of money and real estate, 
chiefly in Elinois, Iowa, Nebraska, and Florida. 

In addition to this, Miss Adelia C. Joy, for twenty years Lady Principal of Ml 
Carroll Seminar)', who died in October, 1903, in Davenport, la., left bequests to 
the School and to the Educational Aid Association. The last is for the benefit 
of pupils in the School who are worthy and who need financial help. 

CCflurHPH nf £tuiig 


No student need hesitate about coming to the School through fear of being 
excluded by the entrance examinations. The Introductory Year furnishes an 
opportunity to make up deficiencies. Students will be admitted to advanced 
classes on presenting written statements from instructors giving detailed account 
of work done, or from examination showing their qualifications to carry on the 
work of these classes with success. Vacation work will be credited only on 
examination. Every pupil must enter a class in spelling or satisfy the 
instructor in English that it is unnecessary. 

Araormir Brpartmrnt 
The courses of study in the Academic Department include the studies neces- 
sary for admission to the best colleges. Each student will pursue such of the 
studies as may be required by the college or university which she desires to enter, 
or, if she prefers, such other work as may be agreed on . 

In the statements which follow, a unit usually represents an exercise daily 
for the usual school year. In a few of the subjects the recitations occur four times 
a week instead of five. 

Students who complete fifteen units (three of which must be in English, three

The work offered above, if rightly chosen, is ample for admission to the Uni- 
versity of Chicago, Vassar, Wellesley, and other colleges for women, and other 
universities or colleges East and West. To ascertain the exact requirements 
at each college it is advisable to write to the colleges concerned. It is highly 
desirable that pupils wishing to prepare for college, especially those in the East, 
should enter here at least by the second or third year of the Academy,

special attention to the development of music since 1700. One recitation each

results of the course of practical value. First semester. Miss Knight.

records of previous work done, but tests given the first week of school have be, 
found to be the most satisfactory method of determining classification, c

clientele he has found time to compose, write magazine articles, lecture on musical 
topics, and engage in frequent concert tours. Bom in Germany, a resident of 
Chicago since 1872, his name has become thoroughly identified with the artistic 
achievements of the city, and he is favorably known and honorably mentioned 
throughout the musical world. Mr. Liebling meets the advanced members of the

1. It is understood that all house pupils enter for the year, unless written 
arrangements to the contrary are made on entering. Pupils who ask to arc u

Dean before the beginning of any semester, may be charged for one half of & 
succeeding semester not taken. 

2. Payment of Bills. — The bill for each semester is to be paid on or befat 
the first day of the semester, and any pupil who registers for work in any semester 
becomes liable for the expense of the half year, whether day pupil or house pop!

in advance to have drafts in the hands of the Dean by the first day of each semester. 
For dates, see Calendar, page 5. When students are compelled to be absent by 
protracted illness, covering six weeks or more during term time, the loss for the 
time after room is surrendered may be shared between the pupil and the School, 
time to be reckoned from date when written notice surrendering die room is 
received by the Dean. 

3. During illness pupils pay for the services of the nurse for time actmDy 
given in room, and for simple remedies furnished on application. Pupils in the 
Infirmary are charged $1 a day for nurse and meals; $1 .50, if night work is 
needed. In serious illness pupils employ a special nurse and physician. Girls 
who need the constant care of a physician are not received. 

4. Laundry.— The laundry must be plain. All pieces difficult to iron will be 
charged extra. Shirtwaists extra between December 1 and April 1. Launor)

ly completed her School course, and wishes to enter, is admitted to the Uni- 
versity of Chicago, to all colleges of the North Central Association of Colleges 
and Secondary Schools, and most other colleges without further examination.

grade and the examination grade is the final grade which is reported to parents on 
request as A, B, C, or D. Those who receive an average of D, the examination 
grade or term grade being 50 or less, must take another examination within six 
weeks. Those who receive E must repeat the subject to receive credit. Pupils
